government spending at the same time. they speak so confident, don't they? it's almost as if they forgot all about the spending cuts the president already gave them over a year ago. well, let's try to help them figure it out a little bit with a little visual and audio assistance. >> over the past two years i've signed into law about $1.4 trillion in spending cuts. two weeks ago, i signed into law more than $600 billion into new revenue, by making sure the wealthiest americans begin to pay their fair share. when you add the money that will save in interest payments on the debt, all together that adds up to a total of about $2.5 trillion in deficit reduction over the past two years. not counting the $400 billion already saved from winding down the wars in iraq and afghanistan. so we've made progress. >> didn't president clinton say it was all about arithmetic? republicans can posture on the debt ceiling all they want. they know the truth. listen to john boehner two years ago. >> do you agree with administration officials and other economists that defaulting on the full faith and credit of the

of government for all time, but it does require us to act in our time. >> good to have you with us tonight, folks. thanks for watching. this was a big deal. in the 57th formal inauguration of an american president, barack obama delivered one of the most progressive speeches ever given by a commander in chief. with more than a million people in attendance, the president took the ceremonial oath of office on the steps of the united states capitol. president obama did not set out to lower expectations of his second term. instead, he established the goals of a progressive agenda. >> my fellow americans, we are made for this moment, and we will seize it, so long as we seize it together. for we, the people, understand that our country cannot succeed when a shrinking few do very well and a growing many barely make it. we believe that america's prosperity must rest upon the broad shoulders of a rising middle class. >> themes of unity, togetherness, and helping our fellow man rang throughout the president's second inaugural address. he did not shy away from our moral obligation to each other either
